Program Manager – Latinx Program (Los Angeles)
Salary: Based on Experience
Salary Range: $65,000 – $78,000 (annually)
Reports to: Program Director
Equality California is the nation’s largest statewide lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer+ (LGBTQ+) civil rights organization with over 900,000 members. Equality California brings the voices of LGBTQ+ people and allies to institutions of power in California and across the United States, striving to create a world that is healthy, just, and fully equal for all LGBTQ+ people. We advance civil rights and social justice by inspiring, advocating, and mobilizing through an inclusive movement that works tirelessly on behalf of those we serve. For more than 20 years, Equality California has been fighting for full, lived LGBTQ+ equality in a number of ways: electing pro-equality leaders up and down the ballot; passing pro-equality legislation in California, Nevada and Washington, DC; and fighting for LGBTQ+ civil rights and social justice in the courtroom.
Equality California Institute is a 501(c)(3) organization that has a parallel mission to Equality California, its 501(c)(4) counterpart. Equality California Institute works to achieve full, lived LGBTQ+ equality by reducing disparities in LGBTQ+ health and well-being, developing a pipeline of LGBTQ+ leaders and increasing civic participation within the LGBTQ+ community.
In 2021, Equality California will launch a new leadership program aimed at equipping Latinx men with the tools they need to implement projects that decrease the stigma surrounding HIV and build people power in communities. We have received a grant to support this program and we will target Latinx men living throughout California and Nevada. Equality California and Equality California Institute seek a full-time Program Manager to lead the implementation and grant management of this leadership program, work with grassroots community leaders, build key relationships with Latinx leaders in LGBTQ+ and allied organizations, and manage all aspects of a detailed grant budget.
